Meetings, Guilds and Other Groups

Whether formal guilds or simply a get-together of friends, one of the best ways of learning about the various arts and sciences is by making contact with others practicising in your area of interest. Southron Gaard has a variety of groups, as well as people with a broad range of interests and skills.

Arts and Sciences Workshops are often held in conjunction with other events. There is also a general Arts and Sciences space each Sunday from 11am - 1pm. Please contact the Arts and Sciences Officer for information or see the calendar.


Southron Gaard Dance Practices are held the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month - see the calendar for the next date.

In addition to our dance practises, the UCMRS (University of Canterbury Medieval and Renaissance Society) also holds dance practises. These are usually each Monday night - see the calendar for the next date.


Southron Gaard Fibre Guild meetings are held the 3rd Sunday of each month - see the calendar for the next date.

There is a Trello board for members to organise events and meetings - please email Mistress Ginevra for access details.

In addition to our meetings, the Guild also organises events and workshops. Check the calendar for more information.

Check the Events Calendar for notices of workshops, meetings, symposia or other planned activities.
